Description
One of our great North American native flowers with rich Indian and medicinal history. The brilliant orange blooms light up meadows dramatically, and of course, visits by butterflies are a bonus. This wildflower, also prized as a garden perennial, is not easy to grow, but once established, is a tough, dependable colormaker.

Comments about American Meadows Butterfly Weed Seeds - Packet:

I planted the seeds in two large pots that are on my deck. I had in previous years planted different things in the pots, so, of course, there were other seeds in the soil. When I got the butterfly weed seeds I scattered them in the pots. Something was coming up that I thought was from previous year's plantings, so I pulled them up. Well needless to say I found out that I had pulled up most of the butterfly weed. I had several to survive and they bloomed beautifully. Since they are a perennial I am sure they will come up next spring.

    Comments about American Meadows Butterfly Weed Seeds - Packet:

    Planted many, many wildflower seeds in new fields last summer (grew well, coming back). Added these two months ago... and they are the 1st flowering plant to bloom! And, they're still flowering.
